During KL Flickr meet’s recent trip to Kuala Selangor. I managed to shoot the sweet and demure Aishah, who in my opinion encompasses the true Malay beauty. She was such a star by posing throughout the day tirelessly and looking spot-on despite the scorching sun. The locations were mainly at the Palm Oil Plantation in Ijok, paddy field and Bukit Malawati, Kuala Selangor.
Here are some shots taken of Lydia, a local model during the recent lighting workshop I did with sifu Ted Adnan. It was an educational workshop into the insights of Flash Photography. I also had the opportunity to meet 4 other enthusiastic photogs – Wan Husmi, Wan Azlan, Amri & Ahmad Fairus. We got a chance to learn about ‘understanding your flash’, fill in flash technique, mix lighting with flash and multiple flash set-up. It was an interesting but tiring session. But well worth it!
My initial passion was to take nature and travel photos, but as time passed I realised that capturing people is equally exciting as it adds a personal touch to the photo and brings forth their character to life.
I also believe that each one of us are beautiful even if we’ve never won a beauty contest or have been featured on the front pages of a magazine. As a photographer I aim to capture your individuality and personality which shines though. I hope you enjoy viewing these portrait shots. Keep your eyes glued for more photos in the near future!
